The Arkansas Journal of Social Change and Public Service is proud announce our two newest members: 2L Simon Kelly and 1L Ashleigh Creed.
Simon is a second year law student from Kentucky and President of the Student Veterans Organization. He and his wife moved to Little Rock in 2016, so he could study law at a veteran-friendly university. He served seven years in the military and deployed to Afghanistan in 2010. Simon currently works for a local criminal defense attorney and desires to improve the criminal justice system.
Ashleigh is a first year law student and a prospective concurrent student at the Clinton School of Public Service. She graduated with honors from Arkansas State University in 2015 with a BA in English. Before making the decision to attend Law School, Ashleigh worked as a corporate executive manager where her passion for leadership and interest in public policy developed into a desire to pursue a Juris Doctor. Ashleigh has a strong interest in corporate law, economics and minority/consumer protection. At Bowen, Ashleigh is currently serving as the 1L Representative for the Public Interest Law Society and is a member of the Arkansas Association of Women Lawyers.
We look forward to working with Ashleigh and Simon to organize our upcoming Volume 7 publications, a spring symposium, and other public events.
